Dear Friends of Fukuoka,
Larry Korn and I, among others, will be teaching permaculture in the
Midwest this summer. Next week I have a lecture tour in Illinois and
Indiana. We could use some help getting the word out about the lecture
PLEASE FORWARD this e-mail to your friends in the Midwest! Help us to
spread Permaculture across the farms and prairies!
"Farmer Dave" Blume -- a succesful Organic Farmer, Ecological
Biologist, land designer, and president of the International Institute
for Ecological Agriculture--has been a leader in educating the public
in permaculture and alternative energy for decades. His lectures and
workshops have taught thousands of people how to provide themselves
with abundant organic food and various alternative energies using safe,
renewable, pollution-free methods. Dave Blume is a frequent teacher and
speaker at ecological and agricultural conferences internationally.
Dave's book, Alcohol Can Be a Gas!, will be in stores in January 2005.
